Some New Stuff!

Firstly, thanks to some clever scripting by Nick Donaldson, you can now play Grim Fandango using the joystick on a WiiMote. All you'll need is a computer with a bluetooth adapter and a WiiMote.

We were also informed about an entertaining YouTube video by Samuel Heiligers in which he plays "Manny & Meche" from the Grim Fandango soundtrack on a violin while dressed up as Manny Calavera:

Be sure to take a look, and why not submit some of your own fan creations? Whether it's artwork, fan fiction, or something more original, we'd be happy to feature it on the site.

The Grim Fandango Novel Returns
Posted by James on Thursday 7th August 2008 @ 10:00 AM - Comments: 10

You may have heard of the original (unofficial) novelisation of Grim Fandango created by MeddlingMonk many years ago, or you may even be lucky enough to have a copy saved to your computer. Since it was published, it has become increasingly hard to find.

However, leading up to the game's 10th anniversary, MeddlingMonk has completed a thorough revision of the novel, which is now available here on the site for download.

In other news, we have given the site a much needed update. New content includes pages such as Compatability which should help with compatability issues with the game (such as running it on Vista), Where to Buy which we aim to update with a worldwide list of stores selling Grim Fandango and the Collecting page which features scans and information about various Grim Fandango collector's items.

We also have some new features we're adding, including email notification when a comment is made on one of your fan creations, and a jukebox with music from the game to use whilst browsing the site.

Grim Fandango Article in The Escapist
Posted by James on Tuesday 4th March 2008 @ 11:51 AM - Comments: 3

An interesting article has appeared in this week's issue of the online magazine The Escapist talking about Grim Fandango's impressive fan community. It also includes quotes from interviews with us and the webmasters of the Grim Fandango Network. You can see the article, "Walk, Don't Run", here.

We would also like to talk about the Grim Fandango Half-Life 2 Mod. We have a fair amount of content completed, but due to time issues with members of the team, the project has been making very slow progress for a while, and has recently pretty much hit a standstill.

However, we are willing to attempt to relaunch it. If we can get together a large enough team, then we'll start working on the project again. If we can't, then it's obvious there isn't enough interest in the mod for it to go ahead. So, if you (or anyone you know) are interested in helping with modelling, mapping, texturing, design or anything else, please let us know, and if there's enough interest we'll be able to continue the project.

Time for our first news update in the new year! First of all we hope everyone had a merry christmas and a happy new year and wish you all the best!

Second of all, there are now Grim Fandango T-shirts available at Bang Bang T-Shirts. Show off how much you love Grim Fandango by buying a Manny Calavera T-shirt (note that these are not official T-shirts by Lucasarts, but pretty cool none the less).

Thirdly, on new year's day a patch was released by Alper Kurt with the great support of Oyungezer which translates the text into Turkish. We were also notified about a fan-created translation into Portugese by the group ScummBR. Both patches can be downloaded here.

That's all for now, but we'll be back very soon with more updates.

Greek Translation Patch Released
Posted by James on Friday 18th May 2007 @ 9:35 AM - Comments: 4

A few months after the release of the release of the Chinese translation patch, the Greek Grim Fandango Translation Team have released version 1.0 of their fan-made greek translation patch for Grim Fandango.

The patch translates the subtitles and game menus into Greek, aswell as installing a modified version of bgbennyboy's Grim Fandango lancher with a new language selection option.

The patch is small in file size and easy to install, and can be downloaded from our downloads section. For screenshots see our languages page.
